Tips for Identifying Attacks

01

Verify the sender's identity before engaging with any messages. Be sure to check the sender's address, such as the email address or phone number, regardless of how legitimate the communication may seem.

02

Be vigilant about webpage URLs. Scrutinize them closely for any discrepancies, and if anything seems amiss, exercise caution and do not trust the source.

03

Exercise caution when dealing with links and pop-out windows.

04

Be aware that offers that seem too good to be true are often just that, and it's best to avoid them. 

05

Exercise caution when assessing the language and design of communications. Pay special attention to messages implying outstanding debts or funds to be collected. 

06

Steer clear of clicking on attachments and links, especially if you have doubts about the sender. Links may contain malware and viruses.

07

Refrain from answering calls from unfamiliar numbers. If it is essential, the caller can leave a voicemail for you to verify their identity. However, do not engage with calls that demand personal information, even if they assert legitimacy. Instead, independently verify their contact information online and ensure you dial the correct number.

08

Enable multi-factor authentication (MFA). MFA involves using a a secondary method to verify your identity. Employing a combination of methods, such as a strong password and a code sent to your email or phone, enhances security by confirming that you are the authorized user accessing an account.
